Canberra’s Hancock Basement are taking the unusual (for a local band) step of releasing a 7″ vinyl record. (The things your parents used for music before CDs). To that end they’re having a launch party with a huge lineup next Thursday night at the Transit Bar (Akuna St, Civic). Entry is free.

This from the Facebook event page.

    Apart from headliners HANCOCK BASEMENT, THE INHERITORS (CENTRAL COAST) will be laying down some glorious T-Rex and the Kinks inspired rock-n roll, while D’OPUS AND ROSHAMBO (DJ SET) will be busting out non-stop classic party jams on the decks. SUPER BEST FRIENDS (DJ SET) will also delve into their record collections for your enjoyment, and lastly (but by no means leastly) the STRANGEWAYS DJs will bring the house down with a classic soulwax inspired set. Be there!

    Yes people, it is time, local faves Hancock Basement have had a massive past 12 months including winning JJJ Unearthed competitions, massive media exposure, collaborating with D’Opus + Roshambo and being all round sexy debonaire rock stars and now they are set to launch their brand new 7″ vinyl piece at Transit Bar for a massive Thursday night party.

Great Nambucco Deliria, good to know that a) you’ll be missing the first gig and b) you’ll be at this second one with Hell City Glamours. Thanks for keeping us in the loop!

By the way, what are your plans for the weekend? I was thinking of organising a Saturday Brunch Sing Along. Bring yourself and some friends to ABN 11am Saturday, would be great to catch up!

Cheers

Freshly squeezed juice may affect G-Fresh’s ability to human beatbox.

I suggest Chamomile Tea.

Fresh is best! Indeed. I’ll be taking a refresher beatbox course before Saturday, I’m hoping the crew will be there to rock the house!

Please bring ear warmers and mittens along, it may be brisk in that big room!

:D
